In 2010, following the loss of his oldest daughter Taylor, Todd left a successful career in media consulting to pursue his God-given passion to promote organ donation and help others. He served as co-founder and President of Taylor’s Gift Foundation until 2014, building an award winning 501c3 non-profit. In 2012 Taylor’s Gift Foundation was named “Best New Charity in the Nation,” from the largest philanthropic awards program in the nation and is currently helping organ donor families across the US with their Legacy Gift program and also currently providing high school seniors with college scholarships in a partnership with Nike Merchandising.
Todd actively speaks to thousands across the country, inspiring participants to embrace the “Outlive Yourself” spirit and share the beauty of being an organ donor. He and his wife Tara wrote about their journey in their recent book, “Taylor’s Gift.” The book was awarded “Most Inspirational Book of 2014” by New York’s Books for a Better Life.
Todd also has more than twenty years of experience as a senior executive in radio and digital media sales, and extensive experience helping companies build their digital and interactive divisions. Prior to Taylor’s Gift, Todd served as Vice President of The Center for Sales Strategy, where he provided management consulting services to broadcast television, radio, cable, digital, and newspaper clients nationally. Being a key leader, he also contributed to employee development as well as assisting with operations, sales, and digital strategies.
Most recently, Todd and his wife Tara were featured in the People Magazine feature, “Heroes Among Us,” honoring them for the work they are doing across the country.
Todd is active in his local community and church. He holds an accounting degree from Texas A&M University and was a leader in Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity and member of CBA Fellows with Mays Business School. Todd and his wife Tara have been keynote speakers at Texas Aggie Muster ceremonies in Arkansas and Texas.
Todd has been an active participant in endurance sports, having completed his first Ironman at 2007’s Coeur d'Alene, multiple Half Ironman triathlons and four marathons, including the 2006 New York City Marathon.
Todd continues to live out and share his grandfather’s wisdom that inspired him, “It isn't what happens to you that matters, but how you react to it that does.”
